Product Description

Review

Review of the hardback: 'The line of argument is elegantly presented and should be appealing and useful to students who want to enter the field and learn the basics of the QCD phase diagram ... The Phases of Quantum Chromodynamics gives a well-structured overview of the phases of QCD under extreme conditions ... for scientists working in the field, the book is a must. And for those who want to learn more about the fascinating world of QCD under extreme conditions, it is a very good starting point.' Physics Today

Book Description

This book discusses the physical phases of Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) in ordinary environments, as well as in extreme environments of high temperatures and high baryon number. Under such extreme conditions, new phases are thought to exist: the quark-gluon plasma and colour superconductivity. After introducing lattice gauge theory, beginning with fundamentals and reaching important recent developments, this book emphasizes the application of QCD to the study of matter in extreme environments through a host of methods, including lattice gauge theory, lower dimensional model field theories and effective Lagrangians.
